Helvey overlaid the video with Amy Grant’s vocal rendition of “Sleigh Ride.

The Fieldstream Farm Christmas Light Festival is a drive-thru Christmas show that displays more than 1 million lights, according to its website.

The video has received more than 1,100 likes on Instagram.

Helvey joked that fame has not gone to her daughter’s head.
